From the founder of T35 Hosting, comes the web hosting blog! Come experience the Web Hosting Mind and get a sneak peek into the news, technology, and issues of free web hosting!
Now that the site is officially set up, I just wanted to introduce myself and let everyone know what to expect. First, a bit about myself.
My name is Alex and I founded a web hosting company (T35 Hosting) in 1997, moving it to the present day T35.com domain in march of 1999. For those of you wondering what “T35″ stands for (and i know you are!), the original concept was a top sites list — top 35. Hosting was only a side project and was run from hosting.t35.com. It didn’t take long for our hosting service to become so popular that we closed up the other sites and decided to focus on solely free web hosting. In fact, T35 Hosting quickly became one of the top 5,000 web properties in the world (as ranked by Alexa) and we have consistently maintained that ranking since then. It made sense to keep t35.com since members received “user.t35.com” URLs and t35.com allowed for shorter website addresses.
Since then, T35 Hosting has gone through many transformations and I have personally been involved not only with T35, but have worked on dozens of other projects along the way. These range from home-grown ideas like wisecounter.com (sold in 2006), to many other start-ups, spanning across several different industries.
With over 10 years of web hosting and web development experience under my belt, I decided this blog might be a good outlet to share some of my experiences. I am hoping that I can not only provide a helpful insight into the world of web hosting, but to share all the knowledge and information that I have learned in the last decade.
I hope to follow up this introductory post with some articles shortly. Expect something good in the next few days… definitely before the end of the weekend!
